my heart bled

the day I accidentally clipped her little finger.

It’s one of those parenting incidents that all mothers warn you about and sure enough, it happened to me. My heart sank when I pulled away the nail clipper and wondered why her little nail was still in tact…this was followed by a minute of stunned silence and many horrifying minutes of wailing and innocent tears. it was gut wrenching and I felt like shit 😦

First aid tip: remember to apply pressure ON TOP of the wound and not squeeze the fingertip otherwise you’ll be left wondering why the bleeding takes hours to stop.
